. the economy is still in a bad can't say they are no longer poor people. they are t concerned about cutting back when bush was president they should do it now. we talked about michael hastings rolling stone reporter who just wrote a book saying that in covering the president being around the media what he observed was very immature behavior. they were giddy is the word that he use the sort of in awe of the president. i think it confirms what we have been saying here almost every week about the problem with the press corps and their inability to cover the president. >> we heard during the inaugural address. we heard about climate change. we heard about gay rights. we heard about lots of issues but nothing much about the deficit and some of the really pressing issues. >> some of the really great analysis from a lot of journalists and commentators was, well, sea liberal who knew? this is the biggest media coverup. this is their version of watergate. he they tried to portray him as a centrist. not a blue state, on red state but a united states of america. a guy who could transcend all of thell
be in this order, number one, look at the numbers, number one by far, strengthening the economy. 86% say that's number one for them. number two, improving the job situation, 79% say that's what they want focused on and number three, reducing the budget deficit at 72%, that number on the budget deficit is up 20 points from when president obama started his term in office. so, those are the priorities of the american people. and does president obama have his eye on the ball? joining me now to discuss it heidi harris, the host of the heidi harris show and if you look at the agenda items spelled out in the president's inaugural address because he's talking about gay rights and immigration reform and climate change, heidi, and the american people seem to be talking about something very different. >> they are, and it's interesting how he didn't spend any time at all on the economy, building bridges and roads, that's really not going to improve the economy and that's pretty much all he said about it in his speech. it shows that he's not listening to what the american people want. and doesn't surprise
. also the times are tough. the economy is sluggish. international challenges put a damper on many things. the president has a lot of work to do and a lot of battles ahead with republicans. they expect it could be significantly smaller. instead of 1.8 four years ago. they lowered the crowd estimates. originally 600 to 800,000. yesterday we were infirmed organizers think maybe closer to 500 to 700. only perhaps a quarter of the size of four years ago. of those here no less enthusiasm. bill, martha. bill: history will show you the beginning of second term, sometimes you get 250, 300,000 at the high end. carl, we'll talk to you later this morning. carl cameron on the mall. martha? martha: people who are here are very enthusiastic and excited to be part of this big day. no doubt that means very tight security here in washington as well. there will be extra air and boat patrols around the city along with checkpoints and metal detectors along the parade route. 2000 police officers from 0 states are helping with security. lined up motorcycles behind us on the parade route. more than 6,000 member
is for the government to have more control over our economy, more taxes, more regulations, more spending. there's a fundamental difference between the president's view of our future and reality and so when the president gives an inaugural address and doesn't address the national debt that's how difficult it is to get anything done. >> greta: what is the reasonable expectation for the american people is going to happen. i mean, knowing the president and knowing that he's in power and knowing that democrats are here in power in the senate and republicans in the house and all the people, all the different interests. what's going to happen? >> i think, look, we're going to have to win some elections and get people up here in both chambers that are going to take this issue seriously. >> greta: and all parties. >> i think in our party-- everybody knows it's inevitable. the time will come when we have to deal with the issues and the sooner we deal with it, the better off we'll be. if we deal with them now we deal with them on terms. the longer we wait to save medicare, the more disruptive it's going t
's like having a 4 trillion-dollar equity fund every year. the entire g.d.p. of the entire u.s. economy he is $16 trillion. this is about 25% of the economy. we're not making the argument all spend in washington but it's all control coming through washington every year. that's why there is is no incentive to ever cut anything. these guys are the beneficiary of that $4 trillion. >> sean: wait. where is a sense of patriotism, duty, responsibility to future generations? you say there is no incentive. i thought they are supposed to serve the public. and when you have to rob our children of 46 cents of every dollar we are spending now, i would think there has got to be some. >> the way the founders look at washington and the way it used to be a generation ago. people would come to washington and public service walking away from businesses. come for period of time. serve in the executive branch whether they were republicans or democrats. people would come and serve in congress and then go home. today, that's what i'm talking about extraction. when peter and i talk about that not just extracting
guns immigration and rebooting the economy and barack obama came on and was in a joef yell mood. >> for all of the talk we had during the campaign ofment o prt obama's ability to raise money it would be a million dollar campaign and the talk mitt romney had more corporate donors it would be a wash in cash. the president had no trouble raising enough money to get himself re-elected it is thanks in part to an incredible network he has built over the years. talk about the importance of money in this election, charles. >> he has never backed for money. in 2008 he was the first to go without the federal matching money so he could raise unlimited amounts he did and he crushed mccain in terms of the fundraising. he is commuting with the 53 percent his way of reaching to try to bring us all together after a campaign where he ran into 47 percent. it is a night where they are just having a good time. i wouldn't take any of it too seriously. it is a minor bit. you have to give him a pass on inauguration. he's having a good time and this is the money essentially to fund all of the festiviti
that exact point harris saying current conditions could lead the president to repeat himself in 2009. economy remains sluggish healthcare remains too costly, et cetera. one historian interviewed the president from rolling stones magazines says mr. obama needs to revise faith in the american dream. >> i would image if i were writing a speech for him i would inject a dose of ronald reagan optimism don't despair in america. >> follow me at twitter at james rosen and i will tell you which president was the first to have his inaugural address live nationwide. >> i always follow your twitter but i will especially tonight. >> you are always so good to me. >> the political landscape at the part of the term was different than it was when he came to the white house four years ago. republicans control the house. you need look no further than the recent game of political chicken over the fiscal cliff to know just how divided washington is. and more instance show downs are looming. one example the debt creel and controlli -- debt ceiling and what americans describe as out of control spending. what do key
are the things hurting our economy making it harder to get people back to work and making it harder for hard-working taxpayers. >> to be fair to president obama he's not the first to do this by any means even george washington did this, teddy roosevelt did many more nixon's wage and price control executive order. peace corps is an executive order. there is precedent. >> there is but if you go back to the founding fathers if men are angels we wouldn't need laws. that's why they set up a checks and balance system of government and the president doesn't appear to believe that applies to him. >> i go back to our first president as i look at an inauguration, george washington said that political parties are likely in the course of time and things to become potent engines by which cunning ambitious and unprincipaled men subvert the power of the people to ue syrup for themselves the reigns of government for unjust tomorrow mignonute -- dominion. you leave the medical profession come to ush with aing ton you see that? >> i want to work to improve the quality of life of the american people. what you

here. clearly, the economy is still in a bad place and you can't say that there are no longer poor people. and they're concerned about spending back when bush was president and should be concerned now. we did an interview earlier michael hastings, the rolling stone reporter wrote a book saying that in covering the president, being around the media, that what he observed was very immature behavior, giddy is the word that he used and sort of in awe of the president. and i think it just confirms what we've been saying here almost every week about the problem with the press corps and their inability to cover the president. >> jon: now, we heard during the inaugural address, we heard about climate change, we heard about gay rights, we heard about lots of issues, but nothing much about the deficit and some of the pressing issues of, you know, the really pressing issues. >> some of the really great analysis from a lot of journalists and commenttators, well, he's a liberal. who knew? this is the biggest media coverup, this is their version of water-gate. they try to portray him as a centri
